  • Are you looking for ways to increase punching
    power among other self-defence skills, or are you
    contemplating signing up with a professional
    boxing gym? Then mastering your punching
    technique and improving it is a must.
  • Factors like your expectation of your opponents
    skills, your balance, timing, and coordination
    decide the quality and boxing punching power.
    However, regardless of how coordinated your
    punching skills are, you wont be able to,
    predict the type of blows that happen in the
    knockout.

  • Most of the boxing punching power comes from the
    back and the shoulders, therefore, if you work on
    your upper body muscles, you land a powerful and
    fast punch. You can do workouts like shoulder
    press, pull-ups, and push-ups to target your
    shoulder and back muscles.
  • However, before we dive into the ways you can
    achieve a powerful punch, lets understand the
    mistakes people make that can impact their punch
    strength. If these mistakes are not corrected,
    they might affect your prospect as an MMA fighter
    or boxer.

Rookie Mistakes
  • Leaving Your Feet
  • Do not leave your feet because it will comprise
    your balance. The superman punch may look amazing
    in films, and it may make your jaw drop in some
    styles of MMA fighting, but it never pays off
    during a traditional boxing match.

6
  • Wildly Throwing Punches
  • You do not just need to plan your punches
    intelligently, but you need to time and place
    them in an optimal manner and land them with a
    precise aim. Wildly thrown fast punches never
    find the target. They either get blocked by the
    opponent or the opponent moves out of the way.

How to Improve Boxing Punching Power
  • Plyometric Push-Ups
  • Plyometric training, also called jump training,
    comprises exercises in which the muscles exert
    maximum force and effort in short bursts. The aim
    is not just to improve power but also speed.
  • Plyometric push-ups are one of the most
    underrated drills for increasing punch power. You
    can do different variations of this increase,
    just ensure that your glutes and core remain
    tight throughout the exercise.

  • When youve enough strength, you can try lifting
    your feet and hands off the floor. This works
    amazing for explosiveness and also translates
    well in the boxing ring.
  • Work on Your Form
  • Work on your style, determine your reach and make
    sure that your punches never go outside your
    reach. More importantly, train extensively and
    spend most of your time doing energetic training
    sessions with a trainer that can help you adjust
    the punch bag and can spar with you.

9
  • Telegraphing
  • This is a mistake that every rookie makes. Do not
    telegraph or cock your punch by pulling your hand
    back before you throw your punch. This gives your
    opponent the time to come up with a defence
    against your punch.

10
  • Reaching
  • Overreaching may assist you in achieving a more
    powerful punch, but it is ultimately a
    self-defeating move because it can result in
    joint injury or pain. Boxing is an amazing sport,
    and, it is meant to be fun while simultaneously
    promoting lifelong and daily health. No good
    professional coach will allow you to reap the
    short-term perks possibly obtained by a bad form
    that will eventually lead to an injury.

  • In order to learn how to punch harder, you need
    to be willing to try new things. Plus, there is
    always room for improvement. Keep an open mind
    and pay attention to different strategies and
    techniques. As you become a better boxer, and
    your punching technique improves, your power also
    increases. These tips will help you improve your
    punching technique to come harder on your
    opponent.
